COVID-19 Vaccine-What You Need To Know
Check Your Eligibility
Vaccines are available at pharmacies, hospitals and through local health departments statewide – please contact your provider of choice to schedule your vaccine appointment.
Additionally, there is a network of State-run sites distributing vaccine statewide – to determine eligibility and schedule appointments at New York State-run vaccination sites only visit the Am I Eligible app.
Successful completion of the Am I Eligible App does not guarantee you access to a vaccine.
As New York State receives additional allocations from the Federal Government, more New Yorkers will be eligible and the Am I Eligible App will be updated. You can recheck your eligibility at any time.
You must bring proof of eligibility to your appointment. This may include an employee ID card, a letter from an employer or affiliated organization, or a pay stub, depending on the specific priority status. If you are eligible because of your age, bring a government-issued ID that includes your date of birth (like a Driver’s License or passport).
Process and Immune Response
Both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines require two shots.
Researchers do not yet know how long immunity after vaccination lasts. That’s why you must continue to wear a mask, wash your hands regularly and social distance.
Potential Side Effects after the Vaccination
You may not notice any changes in how you feel after getting the shot. But it’s also possible to feel a little “under the weather.” This can happen after any vaccine. It is the body’s immune response to getting vaccinated and a sign that the vaccine is starting to work.
After the COVID-19 vaccine, you may have:
- A sore arm where you got the shot
- A headache
Over the counter pain relievers and fever reducers may help.
You should feel better in a day or two. If you still don't feel well after two or three days, talk to your health care provider.
